Famine Folios Book Launch

Cork University Press together with Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University is launching the complete Famine Folios series at ACIS, Cork in the Staff Common Room at 6 pm on Wednesday 20 June.

Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University publishes Famine Folios, a unique resource for students, scholars and researchers, as well as general readers, covering many aspects of the Famine in Ireland from 1845–1852 – the worst demographic catastrophe of nineteenth-century Europe. The essays are interdisciplinary in nature, and make available new research in Famine studies by internationally established scholars in history, art history, cultural theory, philosophy, media history, political economy, literature and music.
